Mankind has always been afraid of the unknown, of the things that they cannot control. This is the case in the apocalyptic story “The Star” by H.G. Wells written in 1897. This short tale narrates the trajectory of a new star in our galaxy, and how it heads into a collision course with the sun. The star is first noticed because of its disruption in Neptune’s orbit, with whom it later collides with. Later on the narrator explains its effects when near Jupiter and this planet’s moons, and lastly, about the consequences it brings to Earth’s weather, soil and humanity while passing at a close proximity of the planet. When first discovered, only the scientific minds, specifically astronomers, were interested in such an event, while the rest of society
The widely believed claim that the moon has physiological effects on humans or other living organisms on Earth is known as the ‘Lunar Effect’.

In the coming weeks we ordered our glasses and read up on all the information we could find. When the day came, we went down to Kentucky and were met with masses and masses of people. Everyone was so anxious to see the eclipse they seemed frantic and hysterical. I can clearly remember the exact expression on the man’s face next to us when he realized that he had bought the wrong glasses for him and his family.
